DARLENE LOVE

DARLENE LOVE, THE MOST HEARD VOICE IN THE 60`S AND ONE OF PHIL SPECTOR`S (BRICKS) IN THE "WALL OF SOUND".

 

HER REAL NAME IS DARLENE WRIGHT BUT PHIL RECHRISTENED HER DARLENE LOVE. SHE AND HER GROUP, THE BLOSSOMS WERE PROBABLY THE MOST IN DEMAND SESSION SINGERS AT THE TIME AND THEY ALSO RECORDED MANY RECORDS AS THE BLOSSOMS,THE PLAYGIRLS, THE REBELETTES (WITH DUANE EDDY), THE CRYSTALS, BOB B SOXX AND THE BLUEJEANS,THE K-CETTES(WITH AL CASEY), THE WILD CATS AND MOOSE AND THE PELICANS AND PROBABLY MORE THAN DARLENE HERSELF CAN REMEMBER.


(Jean King, Darlene Love, Fanita James)

DARLENE WAS ALSO THE VOICE ALONG WITH BOBBY SHEEN ON PHIL`S PSEUDO GROUP , BOB B SOXX AND THE BLUEJEANS WITH GREAT CHART SUCCESS. AND SHE RECORDED FOR PHIL SPECTOR AS DARLENE LOVE WITH GREAT RECORDS SUCH AS "TODAY I MET THE BOY I`M GOING TO MARRY" AND THE FABULOUS "WAIT `TILL MY BOBBY GETS HOME" AND THE UNFORTUNATELY WITHDRAWN "STUMBLE AND FALL". MANY AGREE THAT PHIL AND DARLENE LOVE`S GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT WAS THE MASTERPIECE CHRISTMAS SINGLE "CHRISTMAS, BABY PLEASE COME HOME".
